Boston Sun Covers the 9th Suffolk Special Election

The May 4th issue of The Boston Sun includes a recap of the recent 9th Suffolk District race for State Representative. According to reporter Dan Murphy, “South End resident John Moran, the only candidate left in the race, cruised to an easy victory.” Moran received 85.5% of the 1,751 ballots cast and will not face a Republican challenger in the May 30th General Election.

The article includes a statement from Carol Lasky, Ward 4 co-chair: “The recent passing of Mel King was a reminder that there are big shoes to fill in representing the 9th Suffolk district. There are a lot of exciting opportunities for progress on Beacon Hill this session, from taking bolder action on climate change to strengthening our childcare infrastructure to addressing our housing crisis to (finally) fixing the T, and we look forward to working with Rep-elect Moran to get stuff done.”
